Odette Yustman is still a glowing new bride, but the actress – who married Dave Annable in October – has gained some newfound wisdom as a married women.
“There’s a lot of great things about being a newlywed,” the actress told PEOPLE while promoting her new Fox show Breaking In, which stars Christian Slater. “I mean, I’m still in the honeymoon phase, so everything is great and amazing.”
But Yustman, 25, says that she and Annable, 31, who stars on Brothers & Sisters, have learned some valuable secrets to happiness as a married couple.
“You’re really not going anywhere, so there’s no point in arguing – that’s what we’ve figured out,” she says. “And your insecurities get cut out a little bit.”
The couple also know how to separate their busy work life from private time. “We’ve balanced our work and our personal lives; we really don’t talk about work when we come home,” says Yustman.
Even while the actress worked with her hubby on several episodes of Brothers & Sisters, “We kept work at work,” she says. “We’d get home [after shooting] and talk about just the normal daily things in life.”
The couple tied the knot Ojai, Calif., just north of L.A., in an outdoor ceremony on Oct. 10., 2010.
